(By Marina La Forgia) While discovering and tasting this wine, it's possible also to feel and enjoy the magic of colors! Why? Because this fresh and French "Rosé" by Francois Lurton is made indeed from Sauvignon "Blanc" and Sauvignon "Gris". Voilà, this original blend is been made to captivate!
If you, like me, love sunny apero evenings in the terrace, it's almost irresistible not to be charmed by its perfumed bouquet of roses, pamplemousse, pear and a hint of jasmine and lemon. In the mouth, its gently, rounded and elegantly fruity and dry.
This rosé Les Fumées Blanches is a great addition to the same name label that already offers a very good white in the Quebec market. And that’s not all! Another special white brand from this producer is getting into the SAQ shelves as well, so I’ll be absolutely tasting and reviewing it very soon!
Since I started tasting wines professionally, I always liked and well appreciated the ones of Lurton because of their constant quality, elegance and authenticity, independently the terroir where they come from. This winemaker is in my humble opinion, one of the best in getting the real essence and unicity from the different wine regions and its local varieties, offering to consumers all over wines that are affordable, simply enjoyable and expressive. No matter whether the wines are from Argentina, Chili, France or Spain, his "savoir faire" signature is always the same! And with this new Rosé, I cannot do other than confirm my premise. Enjoy it while it rests… both wine and warm days!
